Who can provide chiropractic services?
You can provide services if you are registered under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (e.g. AHPRA) to practice in the chiropractic profession (other than as a student).
What we can pay for
We can pay the reasonable costs of your patient’s chiropractic treatment, without prior approval, immediately after a transport accident when it is required as a result of a transport accident injury.
We will review our client’s treatment to ensure it’s reasonable, clinically justified, outcome focused and in line with the Clinical Framework. We'll ask you and our client for information during these reviews and may temporarily stop funding treatment if we don’t receive it. When requested, you must complete the Allied health treatment and recovery plan and return it to us.
Reviews help us understand our client’s injuries, treatment needs and goals and how to best support them to get their life back on track. After a review we’ll let you and our client know the decision regarding further treatment.
- If your patient has a severe injury, the discussion, referral and approval of services may form part of the independence planning process between your patient's treating team and our TAC coordinator.
- If your patient already has an individualised funding package, chiropractic services may be included as part of that.
- services that are included as part of a hospital inpatient bed fee
- pool charges, such as pool hire and entry included in the hydrotherapy fee, aqua aerobics and swimming attire
